After yet another mass shooting, Tucker Carlson identified what he believes is one of the factors contributing to young men using firearms on innocent bystanders: women “lecturing” them about “their so-called privileges.”
Carlson opened his Tuesday show by discussing the July 4 parade shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, allegedly carried out by 21-year-old Robert “Bobby” Crimo. The Fox News anchor mentioned how authorities said Crimo had come on their radar twice before: in April 2019 after attempting suicide and a few months later after he threatened to “kill everyone in his immediate family.” After the second incident, police confiscated knives, a dagger and a sword from his home. No charges were filed and no arrests were made.
“Look at Robert ‘Bobby’ Crimo,” Carlson said as a photo of the suspect appeared on the screen. “Would you sell that guy a gun? Does he seem like a weirdo? Of course he does. Why didn’t anyone sound the alarm? Well, maybe because he didn’t stand out.”
“Maybe because there are a lot of young men in America who suddenly look and act like this guy. This is not an attack; it’s just true,” Carlson said. The Fox host then identified things besides social media, porn, video games and “state-approved weed” that he believes led to these young men’s troubling behavior.
“They are drugged by the endless psychiatric drugs being dispensed at every school in the country by cranks posing as counselors. And of course they are angry. They know that their lives will not be better than their parents’. They’re going to be worse,” Carlson said.
“Yet the authorities in her life – mostly women – never stop lecturing her about her so-called privileges. ‘You’re male, you’re privileged.’” Carlson imitated. “Imagine that. Try imagining an unhealthier, unhappier life. So a lot of young men in America are freaking out. Are you surprised?”
Returning to the drugs issue, Carlson said of the men he was describing that “a shockingly large number of them were prescribed psychiatric drugs by their doctors — SSRIs or antidepressants.”
“And that would include quite a few mass shootings,” he said, before listing several instances of mass shootings by young men who were taking prescription drugs.
“So is there a connection? Well, we don’t know for sure,” Carlson said. “We know that children are taking many more of these drugs than ever before.”
